    Ingredients:-
    x2 large aubergines
    x2 large onions chopped
    x3 garlic cloves crushed
    x2 cans chopped tomatoes (the 400g ones)
    x2 cans Chickpeas drained (the 400g ones)
    Salt and pepper
    x3 tbs of olive oil
    and the GOD... Frylight

    To make:-
    Set your oven to pre heat at 250.

    Cut the aubergine length ways and sprinkle with salt to sweat them out.
    Leave for half an hour.
    Whilst doing this, cut up your onions and garlic and fry for about 10 Min's until golden brown.
    Once aubergines are ready, wash the sweat and salt off and then cut into cubes and also fry these until brown.

    Bung everything together and sprinkle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over them, i haven't counted these syns as this does make a HUGE 4 people possible 6 serving but you can do if you want.

    Put in the oven for 60 mins and then serve with rice yum yum yum!!!

    i have a syn free version, only because i am far to greedy to use my syns on tahini paste :)

    1 tin chick peas drained
    lemon juice
    paprika
    garlic (to taste... personally the more the better :D)
    salt
    pepper
    water (4 tblsps... u can tell if u need more)

    Blend it all up untill its smooth, i use a hand blender but im sure u could use a food processor or similar....
    then i serve it with carrot, pepper and cucumber batons or have it on ryvita if they are my healthy extra B :) hope this helps :)

    This makes a very thick hummous... if you like it a little less 'stodgy' im sure you could stir some quark or fat free fromage frais through it :)
